Renovation Contractor serving Victoria and the Okanagan Valley, B.C.


Are you tired of the same old living spaces around your house? Could your bathroom, kitchen, or living room use a renovation? If you’re ready to try something new, contact Make It Real Design today. We are a renovation contractor serving Victoria and the South Okanagan with a mission to help you create your dream home out of the one you have.

Our Design Consultations

Sometimes you know that you want a change, but your idea of that change isn’t quite clear. Make It Real Design can help you refine your vision and bring it into focus during a sit-down design consultation for the space in question.

During our design consultations, we encourage our clients to add their own input, and we create concept drawings and offer perspectives for you to consider. The first step to make your dream space a reality is to put it down on paper.

Our Renovation Services

We at Make It Real Design are a husband–wife team that combines construction and design expertise to accomplish a variety of renovation projects, including:

  • Bathrooms: We improve and install things like layouts, sinks, toilets, tubs, showers, wet rooms, steam rooms, seating, in-floor heating, tile work, vanities, countertops, glass walls and doors, lighting and colour.
  • Kitchens: We can add your personal touch to kitchen components like flooring, lighting, cabinetry, backsplashes, countertops, storage spaces, appliances and sinks.
  • Living rooms: We can reinvigorate your lighting, flooring, panelling, windowsills, and colour scheme.

Whether you’re planning a full-scale renovation or are just considering a change in trim, we can help you show off your home’s best assets as well as your own personal creativity.
